PhotoMed accepts Discover, American Express, VISA and Mastercard credit cards. Your credit card is not charged until your order is ready for shipment. Please be sure to provide the correct billing address as our credit card processor requires the billing address in order to process your order.

We are required to collect state sales tax for orders delivered in California. While we do not collect any tax on international orders, they may be subject to tax, duty and/or import fees (see International Order section below).
We strive to keep most items in stock for immediate delivery (unless we specify that its available on Special Order basis only).
In the event that an item is out of stock or for any other reason it's unable to be shipped, we will notify you usually within one business day. We will keep the order open unless told to cancel it. When the item is in stock, we will ship it out to you. Your credit card will only be charged at the actual time of shipment.
Due to high international shipping costs and taxes and duty fees, we cannot ship any order that includes backordered items. We will hold the order until all items are in stock and available to ship. Contact us if you wish to cancel or change these items.
Cancelling An Order
You can cancel your order provided it hasn't yet entered the shipping process (picked up and in the possession of the shipping company). If the item has entered the shipping process, it cannot be cancelled. To cancel an order, you must call us. However, you can return the item for a refund. (see return policy below).
If the delivery is refused, the shipping and handling charges for both ways will be deducted from the credit.
